Went in by chance to find a unique establishment that had style and individuality in abundance. While waiting for a table other diners said we'd have a great time (they had no connection to the owners!!). To start our party had a green salad with asparagus, iceberg lettuce and puffed grains. Another had the terrine and lastly the fresh grilled... More

I was in the odd time, too late for lunch and too early for dinner. Came by the Queen & Beaver Public House. It was a hot day, just looking for some good bites. Ordered the Sticky-Spiced Lamb Ribs with Sweet Parsnip and Toe Rags with Curried Aioli. I saw a customer ordered the lamb ribs at my last visit... More

Visited this place after a trip to the Niagra Falls as it was close to the hotel. Lovely bar inside with good atmosphere. We were shown to our table by a courteous and polite young girl and given our menus, wine list and water. Food was great only to be let down by the cheap overpriced wine (Septima Malbec) $49...

In Toronto for an event and stopped at The Queen and Beaver for dinner. We arrived a little early so relaxed with a pub snack and drink before the dinner hour. Specialty coffee, a pint, Welsh Rarebit and a Scotch egg was an excellent choice. A little later from the dinner menu we thoroughly enjoyed the Haddock and Chips, the... More

The Q&B has two floors for dining and drinking and the atmosphere is very welcoming! Next time I'm in Toronto, I will definitely return. Its clean, reasonably-priced, and the food is incredible!! My Hand Raised Potato & Corned Duck Pie was delicious!! I can only assume that everything else on the menu is as good, if not better. Well done,... More

We went for the upstairs patio, and yes it's a soccer bar and the Manchester "Darby" was on so it was crazy busy, but we didn't suffer outside. The drinks came as fast as we could consume them. A very good selection, but stay away from Caesar's because the mix is just not the big brand, which rhymes with Snott's,... More

Two of us stopped for drinks and a bite to eat – decent tapas like menu. We were seated on the second floor terrace, very quiet and different from the noisy pub inside. A nice spot to enjoy the early spring warmth.

This is an awesome pub and I make a point of eating here every time I visit Toronto. If you're a burger person - this is the best in TO. Everything I've tried is great and the staff are too.

Perfect to have a beer, drinks or wine. You can choose having like a restaurant or pub. Pub is awesome, it's like your own living room from home. Very comfy and the waiter was very kindly.

Friendly staff. Attentive waiter. Authentic pub food with interesting enhancements. Good selection of beers. The oysters were small and not good value for money. (Not too many pubs in England serving oysters)!! Other food that we ordered was delicious.Table reservation is advisable. Larger menu available for groups booked in advance.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
